Chewing The Fat (Episode #111H)

KQED Plus: Thu, May 28, 2015 -- 7:00 PM

Woody's barbershop collection is second to none. The old barbershops could be found all across America with their distinct barber poles, lush chairs, and sharp razors, which are all on full display in this episode. In the old days the barbershop was a social gathering spot to get a haircut, a shave and ramble on about current events, sports, local politics or whatever else passed the time.

Motor Madness (Episode #110H)

KQED Plus: Thu, May 21, 2015 -- 7:00 PM

Paul Mikkelson boat motors are a sight to see. Impeccably restored, these motors made by Evinrude, Mercury and Johnson are the biggest names and most powerful engines in the boating industry. Add in the hundreds of rare boating advertising items and this collection motors to hundreds of thousands of high dollar bids.

Sign of the Times (Episode #109H)

KQED Plus: Fri, May 1, 2015 -- 1:00 AM

Other famous beers are also featured, including Budweiser, Coors, Michelob, Knickerbocker, Rolling Rock and Ballantine.
